Ron Moore and David Eick's prequel series to Battlestar Galactica hasn't even started casting, but scripts are already leaking onto the Web. If you don't want to know anything about the upcoming series we suggest you move along folks...

Here's what we found out from TV Addict:

    * Caprica is set 51 years before the planet goes nuclear.
    * The show will portray the inhabitants of Caprica as a seedy bunch, "reading like an episode of HBO’s The Wire."
    * The pilot is filled with political intrigue, racial prejudice, religious zealots, "and a seriously cool take on Second Life courtesy of (the fictional company) Graystone Industries million dollar idea, the HoloBand."
    * Father and billionaire scientist Daniel Graystone is busy worrying that, "his company is on the verge of losing the government contract for the Robot Super-soldier and Meta-Cognitive Processor after wasting five years and half a billion cubits."
    * His wife, Amanda, is cheating on him with his chief rival Tomas Vergis (a Tauron).
    * His daughter Zoey joins an organization called, 'Soldiers of One' -- "a monotheistic religious group that advocates the worship of a single, all-knowing, all powerful God whose mission is to, 'drive out the many Gods.'"
    * Act one ends with a violent act of terrorism that kills Ben and Zoey as well as innocent bystanders Shannon and Tamara, wife and daughter of Joseph Adams. Cue world beats opening credits.
    * Graystone and Adams befriend each other in grief and decide to use the technology at Graystone Industries to download both daughters' consciences into the cybernetic life-form nodes (or Cylons) that are currently in R&D at the company.
    * By the end of the pilot, Adams and Graystone are enemies, torn apart by ethical differences.

Again, this idea is so poorly conceived.

Especially now that they have to retcon it, considering the religious argument during the quorum meeting on last night's episode.  I guess there is an off hand mention, but if the one god cult was such a fucking big deal, then how come everyone isn't all, oh, Baltar's just copying those nutballs?  And how come the whole concept has been alien to everyone, including Baltar?

The simple answer is that Caprica is an abortion.

Paula Malcolmson (Trixie on “Deadwood” and Jerri on “John From Cincinnati”) will play the mother of Zoe Graystone, whose likeness and personality are utilized to create the first Cylon in the SciFi TV-movie “Caprica,” a pilot prequel set 50 years before the events depicted in “Battlestar Galactica.”

Malcolmson plays Amanda Greystone (not to be confused with Amanda Greyson, who was Spock’s mom), a surgeon who goes to extraordinary lengths to help her husband revive her dead 16-year-old daughter via robotics.

That's great. When is this show canceled again so I can avoid the DVDs?

Wait!  This is the modern version of Galactica 1980!

The cool space show has a ratings plummet so, when it returns, it's decades later show time, they're orbiting Earth, human-form Cylons are allergic to microwave ovens, and the fleet is run by a 10 year old boy genius who is really the son of Starbuck and an exiled Being of Light!

Oh, and the vipers are disguised as motorcycles and half the series focuses on a quirky boyscout troop.

Esai Morales – spectacular as the military man who watched over “Jericho’s” second season – has been cast as Joseph Adama, Bill’s lawyer dad, in the “Battlestar Galactica” prequel pilot “Caprica.”

Joseph Adama, it turns out, used his Tauron underworld connections to help a wealthy genius scientist create the first Cylon.

Do you get it? I'm parodying their message boards, which are somehow worse than imdb, the worst forums on the Internet.
